We Make Giving Easy

Assets We Accept

Establish your gift fund or make a tax-deductible contribution to an existing fund at FFTC with a wide range of assets.  

Ways You Can Give


Make a contribution by wire or check. Checks should be made payable to Foundation For The Carolinas and should include the fund name or other gift designation in the memo line. To transfer cash, simply follow our gift transfer instructions.

Publicly Traded Securities

Leverage tax benefits and maximize charitable impact by gifting appreciated stock, which we liquidate upon receipt for the benefit of your charitable fund. 

Transfer stocks to one of FFTC’s several brokerage accounts offered for your convenience. To transfer securities, simply follow our gift transfer instructions.

Mutual Fund Shares

Gifts of mutual fund shares may be required to be transferred directly to an FFTC account within the mutual fund family. Please contact our donor relations team at 704.973.4529 or to coordinate the transfer of mutual fund shares.

Closely Held Business Interests

By gifting interests in LLCs, limited partnerships or closely held corporations, you can support the causes you value and reduce your tax liability, all while retaining control of your business. Leverage FFTC’s unique structure and experienced team to maximize gifts of business interests for philanthropic impact.

Give Business Interests 

Real Property

Support the causes you value and maximize your tax savings by gifting residential property, commercial real estate or undeveloped land. Assets are held in a subsidiary until liquidated for the benefit of a charitable fund.

Give Real Estate

Life Insurance Policies

When planning your estate, you can designate FFTC as the owner and beneficiary of your policy, or designate FFTC as beneficiary of its proceeds.

Retirement Plan Assets

Support your favorite causes with your retirement plan assets. You can designate FFTC as the beneficiary of a portion or all of the assets held in a qualified retirement plan or IRA.

Always consult your tax advisors to understand the tax implications of any gift. For more information, including FFTC’s gift acceptance policies, see FFTC’s charitable giving guide.
